Codariocalyx motorius (Desmodium gyrans) 20 Seeds

Codariocalyx motorius (Desmodium), known as the telegraph plant or semaphore plant, is a tropical Asian shrub, one of a few plants capable of rapid movement.

Codariocalyx motorius produces small, purple flowers. Telegraph plant contains small amounts of tryptamine alkaloids in its leaves, stems.

This plant Codariocalyx motorius is famous for its movement of small, lateral leaflets at speeds rapid enough to be perceivable with the naked eye. This is a strategy to maximise light by tracking the sun. Each leaf is equipped with a hinge that permits it to be moved to receive more sunlight, but the weight of these leaves means the plant must expend a lot of energy in moving it. To optimise its movement, each large leaf of Codariocalyx motorius has two small leaflets at its base. These move constantly along an elliptical path, sampling the intensity of sunlight, and directing the large leaf to the area of most intensity.

The common name Codariocalyx motorius is due to the rotation of the leaflets. Just play some music near the platn and it begins to "dance"!

Codariocalyx motorius (Desmodium gyrans) growing instructions included.
